    Unlocking Crystallographic & Microstructural Secrets of Your Materials

    Diffraction Contrast Tomography: Out of the Synchrotron and Into the Lab

    Andy Holwell, Manager, Business Sector Industrial Research


    The ability to image the grain structure and quantify the underlying crystallographic orientation in materials such as metals is instrumental to understanding and optimizing material properties. The nondestructive nature of microCT imaging facilitates the understanding of microstructural evolution in situ, characterizing the impact of thermal, mechanical, or environmental conditions on material behavior. Additionally, the scanning electron microscope with electron backscatter diffraction (EBSD) enables crystallography and accompanying analysis of pole figures, strain, grain size, etc. Such studies help to evaluate the performance and durability of new, lighter, and stronger advanced materials, and address issues such as functionality, safety, and improved economics.


    Join this webinar to learn more about advanced materials characterization, modeling, and discovery through ground-breaking crystallographic scanning.


    In this webinar, attendees will learn how to:

    • Achieve unprecedented sample representation
    • Scan larger sample volumes
    • Simplify sample prep and handling of irregular/realistic sample shapes
    • Use automation to index grain data with precision and speed
    • Address sample specificity



    is the business sector manager for the metals industries at Zeiss Microscopy. He has nineteen years of experience in catalysts, chemicals, and metals in technical, analytical, and commercial roles, and currently leads the strategic marketing, innovation, and market education activities for advanced microscopy solutions for steel, aluminium, and other metals.
